Both entering and completing treatment can be very stressful for individuals as it indicates imminent change. The travel to and from, in itself, is a time when the unknowing can cause extreme anxiety which often results in high risk choice making.
At Hired Power we provide Safe Passage for clients and families during this transition period. Hired Power’s Certified Personal Recovery Assistants are able to travel to a client’s home, assist them in the necessary preparations and accompany them to the door of the treatment setting.
Quite often, clients need to return home during the course of treatment for a family situation, legal issue, or a program home visit. The Certified Personal Recovery Assistant will arrive at the treatment center and provide Safe Passage for the client during the necessary excursion from treatment. This service has helped to bring continuity to the experience and decrease the risk of a client’s relapse or refusal to return to the treatment setting.
Moving from a primary treatment center to an extended care center has long been a proven time of increased anxiety and risk. Clients are faced with the known risks of carrying their own medications, passing by airport bars with long periods of travel time, stress and delays. Having a gender-specific Certified Personal Recovery Assistant during this transition can be the determining factor of getting a client to their next destination safely. This service can potentially reduce the need for an additional drug intervention, detox settings thereby minimizing the risk of relapse in recovery.
Common situations where a Safe Passage is best utilized to support the client and families:
“I have worked with Hired Power extensively in collaboration with Clearview Treatment Programs’ individualized outpatient program. I am always impressed with their effectiveness and professionalism.”
“Thanks again for being there for us and guiding us through some rough waters. Your kindness and genuine concern deeply touched my soul and we are all grateful our paths crossed when they did. You are a truly gifted professional, keep on doing what you do so well.”
“I just want to thank Hired Power for the PRA. He was a perfect match and I can’t say enough…. He was intensely committed. This is the first time I have been clean in over 30 years. Thank you again.”
“I don’t look at you (Hired Power) as hiring a service, I look at you as saving my life.” (referring to his ability to stay sober after returning home).
